i told my 3 friends how much i have saved and they all said wow that’s a lot (for our age, no job). Then my friend told my other friend on the way home.

Is telling people your savings a bad thing? I regret saying it and I feel like i could get evil eye from it. My parents always taught me to keep it private but in the moment I just said it. One of my friends can get jealous from me at times so i just really regret telling them, and i don’t want other people finding out and saying “oh you’re not broke you’re rich you have x amount” when really that’s my savings since I am actually much broker than everyone else, hence why I’m stingy on my money and only spend it when necessary.

You’re right. I thought it was just me that was private on these matters but guess not. Next time I guess I’ll just avoid the question or ignore it

I mean, I personally wouldn't share that information but Idk why your supposed 'friends' have to make you feel bad about it? If my friend told me how much money they'd saved I'd probably have a more 'good for you!' attitude about it, and I'd feel kinda happy that they feel comfortable sharing that info with me. In any case, there's no point in regretting it bc it's already done, so just be a bit more careful with who you tell in the future. For now, just don't mention it again with this friend group and the topic will eventually go away.

thanks for the advice! Majority of my friends did say “wow good on you, what am i doing with my life” (in a jokey way - they don’t save) but it’s just that one friend. If i make a common “you’re too rich for us” joke to take the mick or something i KNOW she’ll say “aren’t you the person with x amount in your savings”. But yeah I’ll just avoid the topic of money all around.
